History of the Perkiomen Valley Library
From a very modest beginning, the Library today houses many more than the 12,500 volumes for which it was designed, as well as a spacious social hall that is used by various community organizations. For many years this Library was supported by volunteer contributions of time, money and books. The Schwenksville Women’s Civic Club, led by Elinor Edmonson and Kit Piotrowski, contributed countless hours to staffing and conducting the business of the library.
The name of the library was changed in 1985 to Perkiomen Valley Library to more accurately reflect all the communities served. Growing community needs led to a formal association with Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library. In 1996, the Library became a branch of MC-NPL, which affords users the benefits of MCLINC, a county-wide library network; Access Pennsylvania, a state-wide library network; and POWER Library, a comprehensive database repository.
Today we are known as Perkiomen Valley Library at Schwenksville, A Branch of Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library.
PVL’s local service area includes: Borough of Schwenksville; Borough of Collegeville; Borough of Trappe; Perkiomen Township; Lower Frederick Township; Skippack Township & Upper Salford Township
